Because of my Dogs

I’ll never want for new and disgusting smells to discover.

I’ll always need that second cup of coffee.

I’ll know that someone thinks highly of me.

I’ll remember that naps are good but playing is better.

I’ll never want for something to smile about.

I’ll always need a lint roller in every room and two in the car.

I’ll know that someone is waiting for me to come home.

I’ll remember that leftovers shouldn’t be.

I’ll never have a permanent place on the bed.

I’ll always need to look both ways before crossing to the bathroom at 4AM.

I’ll remember to keep my tongue inside my mouth when I’m sleeping.

I’ll never have vacuum that meets my standards.

I’ll always have an excuse to leave boring parties.

I’ll never run out of things to photograph.

I’ll remember to look down when I want to pick myself up.

  1. Heh — I’ve taken to carrying my iPhone like a nightlight when I get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night to avoid the critters!

    I’ve also learned that I need never worry about being alone in the bathroom and that the right color carpeting will hide a multitude of pet hair 🙂

  2. Too funny – I am also familiar with iPhone flashlight trick to avoiding dogs and other bathroom blockades. Love this list.

  3. Black dogs in the black darkness = things that make me go bump in the night.

    Because I have dogs, I’ll never lack for a good example for life: if you can’t eat it or play with it, ignore it until it goes away.

    Love this list, Kevin — thanks!

  4. Fantastic list 🙂 I particularly enjoy the one about the leftovers … our boys look as us as though we’re committing murder when we put food into the fridge. To them, food goes *one* way … from the fridge to the plate … from the plate to the DOG BOWL!!

  5. Hey Kevin, this list is great as it made me smile from beginning to end.

    Please forgive me but I’m about to add a few items of my own:

    Because or thanks to my dogs …

    … I can never mindlessly roll my home office chair in any direction.
    … I can never throw myself on the coach before checking whether it’s actually vacant.
    … I can never eat a meal without being glared at.
    … I can never put on a pair of slacks without first winning a game of tug of war.
    … I can never step out of the house without feeling a little guilty.
    … I can never be sure that walking in the dark won’t produce a squeak, a squeal or a yelp.

    By the way, I love your blog and I visit it frequently. I have also incorporated your link within my DogProducts.org site as a valuable resource for my visitors. Would you be willing to return the favor by placing my link right here on your blog?

    • Yes it works on many levels doesn’t it? When dogs do it, it’s both endearing and ridiculously funny. If we do it, It’s ridiculously funny and a great way to coat your tongue with fur. 🙂
